This is the vision I have for Muskoka. A dedicated space for women – not a shelter, not transitional housing, not rentals, but a land held in trust, and homes created by and for the women who wish to live there. Homes that belong to them. A sense of ownership, pride, stability, security, community, respect.
The word activism is so lovely. It just means that we act in accordance with our values. That we do something. Part of my role as an activist is to activate others. To wake others up and show them the power they have if they decide to channel it. When is one voice insufficient? When it forgets it has never been one voice.
Opportunities for living on the land include: building your own home with the help of other Hexagon members, paying tradeswomen to build your home to Hexagon environmental and community standards, bringing a previously built ‘tiny house on a trailer’ to the property. Hexagon also intends to offer a portion of land for ‘rent’ to women camping, RVing, or otherwise ‘Wild living’ in order to learn about Hexagon prior to living there, or simply to experience it.
